Winchester Lib Dem Parliamentary Candidate opposes plan to rush through approval for Barton Farm

Kelsie and Martin check the new plans for Barton Farm

Lib Dem Council Group Leader, Kelsie Learney & Prospective MP, Martin Tod, discuss the new plans for Barton Farm

Responding to the new consultation on building on Barton Farm, announced by Cala Homes, and their intention to submit a planning application by the end of the year, Martin Tod, Liberal Democrat Prospective MP, commented:

“The last thing we need is a plan for Barton Farm rushed through in the dying days of the current Labour Government. Both the Liberal Democrats and the Conservatives have promised to get rid of central housing targets, so Cala appear to be trying to get approval while the local Conservative plans for Winchester are in chaos, and before Labour are kicked out. Whatever the merits of the proposals, now is not the time to be pushing them through. Building on green fields should be absolutely the last resort in the Winchester, not something forced through before an election.”
